Our Tuition Assistance Philosophy

Brookwood School has a strong commitment to need-based tuition assistance in order to support access and affordability.  Brookwood’s tuition assistance program supports children in Kindergarten through Grade 8 with an annual budget of approximately $1.7 million and 26% of our student body receiving some level of tuition assistance. These need-based grants range from 10%-95% of Brookwood’s annual tuition. 

Brookwood encourages families with limited financial resources to apply for assistance, based upon the assumption that the primary obligation for financing a student’s education will rest with the family.  Brookwood’s Tuition Assistance Committee awards aid to families who demonstrate financial need, using the needs analysis system of the School and Student Services for tuition assistance (SSS) by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), while adhering to the availability of budgeted funds. Financial need is determined by taking into account many factors including income, net worth, standard living expenses, certain unusual expenses, family size, and the number of children attending tuition-charging schools.

All information received by the Tuition Assistance Committee is held in the strictest confidence. There is no general knowledge shared as to which students are recipients of tuition assistance.
